Suffice to say that I was born into a muslim family and grew up learning the faith and doing everything that my community and religious teachers told me. When I was young I did not know that my religious faith was sectarian. I would find out later that we belonged to the maliki sect.
Malikis are one of four major sub-sects within the larger religious sect of ahlul-sunnah-wal-jamaah or the sunnis. The hanafis were different from the malikis who were different from the shafiis and hanbalis. And then there were the shiahs who are not part of sunnism. I would not speak to a shiah until I was 23 years old. Later I would get to know more shiahs in my own country and also travel to shiah lands.
It took me almost 30 years to find out that the sunni religion that I had been born into was a fake. And so is the shiah religion. I had been born into a heresy against the Koran and Islam. Both the sunni and shiah religions had nothing to do with the teachings of the Koran, which we are told was taught to us by the prophet. That is what this book is all about and we will be getting into this right away.
This book is NOT an attempt to convert anyone into the ‘Islamic religion’. There is no such thing as ‘religion’ in the Koran. A religion needs a priesthood, rituals, festivals, feasts, heaven, hell, afterlife and such. There are none in the Koran. The prophet and the Koran did not create any ‘religion’. As you read this book you will see evidence for this.
There is only a submission (islam) or lowering oneself to an orderly way of life (deen) that is prescribed in the Koran. The Koran is designed to make our lives easy and successful.
20:2 We have not revealed the Koran to you that you may be unsuccessful
If your life is orderly, successful and you are not a hindrance or a nuisance to the society around you, you are already a muslim and Islamic – no matter wherever or whoever you are.
The mullahs have created the 'Five Pillars of Islamwhich they say are the foundation of Muslim life. The Five Pillars of Islam are :
· The all important Shahadaor a bearing witness to the oneness of Allah and the messengership of “muhammad”.
· Establishment of the five daily prayers
· Paying the religious tithes or zakat
· Fasting in the month ofRamadan
· Pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
These Five Pillars are all fake. All five of them are not found in the Koran at all.
Not surprisingly, it is the mullahs themselves who insist that there are no five daily prayers in the Koran. The mullahs say that is why you need the non Koranic hadith. Without theirhadith ‘you cannot even pray five times a day,’ says the mullah.The mullahs Five Pillars of Islam are non existent in the Koran.
Hence after we remove all these mullah fabrications and falsehoods what remains of Islam is a Koran with a very brief, practical, user friendly and completely universaldeen or way of life.
Islam literally means a submission. The Koran says:
39:18 ‘The only way of life (deen) by Allah’s reckoning is submission (Islam)’. (Arabic transliteration :innalad-deenaindallaahi al Islam).
What is this deen or way of life? It is prescribed throughout the Koran.
Sunnism and shiahism are greatly plagiarized from the Bible plus the jewish and other teachings. We have already seen some examples and we will see numerous other examples of this plagiarism in this book. Themullah ‘religion’ is largely a biblical plagiarism. It has nothing to do with the Koran or Islam.
This is not an indirect attempt at blaming the christians or Jews for the failure of the muslims or the problems faced by Islam. The vast majority of christians have stopped believing that adulterers must be stoned to death or that heretics must be killed. But somewhere along the way, vast amounts of biblical laws and jewish theology have either been exported or imported into Islam – repackaged as the hadith or ‘sayings of the prophet’, the sunnah or ‘the practises of the prophet’, the ijma or ‘the consensus of the mullahs and such.
The jewish and biblical penetration is so deep that the sunnis and shiahs are actually outside the pale of Islam. There is no other way to say this.
I was able to recognize the falsehood of the sunnism that I had been born into because of the Koran – the muslim Book of Guidance.
Reading and understanding the Koran instead of just chanting it blindly like a parrot exposed the falsehood of my ancestors. On a much happier note now I firmly believe that it is the same Koran which has now set me on the path of right guidance (siraatalmustaqeem). I hope to share this knowledge with you that it is quite wonderful to be a muslim who follows only the Koran.
We are seeing yet another collapse of the muslims all over the world. I use the general term ‘muslim’ which includes the sunnis,shiahs, wahhabis, salafis, qadianis, ahmadias, tablighis, soofis, ismailis and every other shade and flavor of ‘muslim’. They are imploding upon themselves in violence, falsehood, paganism (mushrik) and rejection (kuffar). And they persist in poverty. To persist in poverty and violence generation after generation, century after century is clear enough evidence of being misled by satan.
2:268 “The satan binds you to poverty” (Arabic transliteration: ‘al shaitaanuya-iddu-kumufaqra’).
This is indeed the fate of the vast majority of muslims who obey their mullahs. Satan has bound them over completely. The only muslims who have escaped poverty are those who have left their home countries and escaped to the West. Or they are among the elite in the oil producing countries.
To all the “biblical” muslims I hope you will read this book objectively without the usual emotions and anger. You have been completely cheated by your mullahs. I hope this book will help you in your journey towards the beautiful and powerful Islam which is still preserved in the Koran. The Koran will liberate you from ignorance (jahil) and backwardness and make you into modern and productive human beings.The Koran will make all your neighbours love you, whether they are christian, hindu, jewish, sunni or shiah.
I became curious about the overbearing influence of the Bible and jewish theology on the sunnis and shiahs because there are far too many similarities between them. Themullahs have incorporated non Koranic beliefs from the Bible as the hadith and sunnah (sayings and practices) of the Prophet. To legitimise their fabrications the mullahs say the jewish and christian scriptures bore the same teachings as Islam. This is not true at all.
The Koran does not have the same teachings as the Bible. I will show in this book that what is accepted by the mullahs from the Bible and jewish theology is completely different and opposite to the teachings in the Koran. The following verses in the Koran got me thinking about this:
3:100 O you who believe! If you obey a party from among those who have been given the Book (ahlulkitab) they will turn you back as unbelievers after you have believed.
3:101 But how can you disbelieve while it is you to whom the verses of Allah are recited, and among you is His Messenger? And whoever holds fast to Allah, he indeed is guided to the right path.
The mullahs say the ahlulkitab refers to the “people of the book” ie the jews and christians who read the Bible and the Torah. In the two verses above, the prophet warns the believers that some of the “people of the book” will seek to deviate them into disbelief. This immediately implies that the books in the possession of the ‘people of the book’ cannot berelied upon by the muslims. Hence the need for the revelation of the entire Koran (3:101). Having warned the believers thus, the prophet could not have takenteachings from the Bible and passed it off as his own sayings. He would have completely debunked himself.
I must clarify that I am not embarking on a journey here to establish if the Koran is from a ‘god’ or that you should believe in the Koran. Or that there even is such a thing as ‘god’ in the Koran. You will see in this book that the Allah of the Koran is very different from the biblical idea of god. The Allah of the Koran does not send you to hell or heaven. Neither does Allah ask you to pray to him five times a day.
The muslims say that they live by the Koran. I wish to prove to the muslims that they do not live by the Koran. They are living according to falsehoods plagiarised from the Bible by the mullahs. And I want the muslims to know that they must return to the Koran. The Koran shall be their salvation.
The Koran states that it represents the spoken word of the messenger :
69:40 ‘Most surely, it is the speech of an honourable Messenger’.
The Arabic is clear : “Innahu la qaulurasuulinkareem”.
‘Qaulu’ means speech. In the Koran the messenger is also the prophet. Hence sometimes I prefix the verses of the Koran that I quote with the words 'the prophetsaid..'
The Koran states that it is also a confirming scripture or criterion. The Arabic word for criterion is 'furqan'.
25:1 “Blessed is He Who sent down the furqan (criterion) upon His servant that he may remind the nations”.
It is plain logic that a scripture can only confirm things that are found within its own pages.
For example through repeated reference to the female gender the Koran says that Allah created the human from asingle Self which is described in the feminine form. From this Self Allah then created her spouse and then through them many other men and women.
4:1 O people, observe your Lord; the One who created you from the earliest female Self (min nafsinwaahidatin) and created from her (min-haa) her mate (zauja-haa), then spread from the two many men and women. You shall regard Allah, by whom you swear, and regard the parents. Allah is watching over you.
Arabic words have a male and female gender. In this verse from the Koran the female gender is used four times ie ‘nafsin’, ‘waahidatin’, ‘zauja-haa’ and ‘min-haa’ are addressed in the female gender.
The verse also mentions men (rijal) and women (nisaa) separately. This means that the use of the word nafsin which is of the female gender is deliberate.
Most certainly nowhere does the Koran say that Allah created the woman from the rib of the man. But that is what is written in the Bible and also written by the mullahs in their false hadith. The mullahs echo the biblical story.
First here is a hadith about the creation of the woman from the rib of the man related from Ibn 'Abbas and Ibn Mas'ud which is referred to by the mullahs including Fakhrud-Din ar-Razi, Isma'il ibn 'Umar Ibn Kathir and al-Fadl ibn al-Hasan al-Tabarsi.
“When God sent Iblis out of the Garden and placed Adam in it, he dwelt in it alone and had no one to socialize with. God sent sleep on him and then He took a rib from his left side and placed flesh in its place and created Hawwa' (Eve) from it. When he awoke he found a woman seated near his head.
He asked her, "Who are you?" She answered, "Woman." He said, "Why were you created?" She said, "That you might find rest in me." The angels said, "What is her name?" and he said, ‘Hawwa'. "They said, "Why was she called Hawwa?" He said, "Because she was created from a living thing."
Note how closely this hadith matches the following Bible verses :
Bible Genesis 2:20-25
20 But for Adam no suitable helper was found. 21 So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. 22 Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. 23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” 24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
Both this Bible story and the mullah hadith cannot be found in the Koran. Therefore as a criterion or furqan the Koran cannot confirm both these stories.
Here is another Bukhari version of the same Bible story which is revered by the mullahs as gospel truth.
Bukhari Vol. 4, Book 55, Number 548: Narrated Abu Hurairah: God’s Apostle said, “Treat women nicely, for a woman is created from a rib, and the most curved portion of the rib is its upper portion, so if you should try to straighten it, it will break, but if you leave it as it is, it will remain crooked. So treat women nicely”.
Obviously this non Koranic and illogical hadith is also based upon thesame ‘rib’ story in the Bible which themullahs pass offas the ‘sayings of the prophet’. Here is another one.
Bukhari Vol. 7, Book 62, Number 113: Narrated Abu Hurairah: God’s Apostle said, “The woman is like a rib, if you try to straighten her, she will break. So if you want to get benefit from her, do so while she still has some crookedness”
It is not the aim of this book to explain these nonsensical hadith. As a criterion or furqan the Koran just cannot confirm these rib stories.
To overcome this obvious deviation, the mullahs created the concept that their “hadith” are complementary to the Koran. “The hadith explain the Koran” they say. We will address this invention of the mullahs throughout this book.
Since Bukhari (said to have died in 870 AD) collected his hadith about 200 years after the prophet it is obvious that during that long stretch of time the Bible crept into his inspiration. Obviously the mullah claim that Bukhari has a stature “second only to the Koran” was an idea developed later to legitimize their incredible claims.
Hence the sunnis (and shiahs) have compiled thousands of “sayings of the prophet”. Until today they cannot explain which one of their collections of hadith are complete and sufficient. For example if we ask the mullahs “Can you lay on a table the complete collection of all the ‘sayings of the prophet’?” they will be stumped. There is no such thing.
The mullahs boast that Bukhari sifted through 600,000 hadith and only extracted about 3000 hadith (0.5%) as authentic. Putting it in perspective Bukhari’s 600,000 samples were 99.5% corrupted. Effectively the entire sample was corrupted. This really does not lend any credibility to the 0.5% or 3000 hadith that Bukhari lifted from this rubble. To illustrate this point, here are some more samples of this 0.5% that Bukhari deemed authentic :
(Bukhari, Beginning of Creation 2:244) Rats are the lost tribe of Israel because they drink not the camel's milk, but drink goat’s milk.
(Bukhari, Vol. IV, No. 524) The Prophet said, “A group of Israelites were lost. Nobody knows what they did. But I do not see them except that they were cursed and transformed into rats, for if you put the milk of a she-camel in front of a rat, it will not drink it, but if the milk of a sheep is put in front of it, it will drink it.
(Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Number 537) Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said "If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease."
(Bukhari 9:88:232) Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established till the buttocks of the women of the tribe of Daus move while going round Dhi-al-Khalasa."
(Bukhari Vol. II, No. 41) Narrated Jabir bin Abdullah: The Prophet used to stand by a stem of a date-palm tree. When the pulpit was placed for him we heard the stem crying like a pregnant she-camel till the Prophet got down from the pulpit and placed his hand over it.
(Bukhari Vol. II, No. 245) If one sleeps and does not offer the prayer, Satan urinates in his ears. Narrated Abdullah: The Prophet said, “Satan urinated in his ears.”
(Bukhari Vol. I, No. 301) God’s Apostle … said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you women…. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you.”
(Bukhari Vol. IV, No. 779) “..no doubt, we heard the meal glorifying God, when it was being eaten (by God’s Apostle).”
Bukhari Vol. IV, No. 543: Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “God created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall (104 feet).
Bukhari Vol. IV, No 546: When Abdullah bin Salam heard of the arrival of the Prophet at Medina, he came to him and said, “I am going to ask you about three things which nobody knows except a prophet:
1. What is the first sign of the Hour (i.e. the end of the world)?
2. What will be the first meal taken by the people of Paradise?
3. Why does a child resemble its father and why does it resemble its maternal uncle?”
God’s Apostle said, “Gabriel just now told me of their answers.” Abdullah said, “He (i.e. Gabriel), from amongst all the angels, is the enemy of the Jews.”
God’s Apostle said: “The first sign of the Hour will be a fire that will bring together the people from the East to the West. The first meal of the people of Paradise will be extralobe of fish-liver. As for the resemblance of the child to its parents: If a man has sexual intercourse with his wife and gets his discharge first, the child will resemble the father, and if the woman gets her discharge first, the child will resemble her.”
It is difficult to think that even in ninth century Arabia, adult men who were considered scholars would pen such foolishness and then claim to authenticate these stories as the sayings of a prophet. Despite the Koran being more antique, going back to the seventh century, there are no such foolish stories in it.
